Kate @ Melting Pots and Other Calamities asked:

What was the first book you reviewed?


It was City of Bones, but it got deleted so I had to rewrite it. Now it only has 3 sentences because I forgot what I originally put. 😂

What was your least favorite book?


The Infinite Moment of Us seemed like a good book at the time, but the characters really annoyed me and I wanted to DNF it. I finished it though, but it’s not a book I’d recommend.

What else do you have in mind for your blog? Will you blog about other things rather than book reviews?

I want to try out some Book Tours, but so far I haven’t been accepted in any. For now, I’m on a break with asking for more Review Copies; I have to finish the pile I already have.

Other than that, I don’t have any current plans.

Tinka @ The Book Raven asked:

What is your favorite quote from the book you most recently read?

I couldn’t remember any good quotes, so I searched up one that I liked. (Thank you Goodreads!)

“Having dreams never killed anybody.”

— Nicola Yoon, The Sun Is Also a Star

What is something that immediately makes you smile?

Anything artsy! Whether it be a book cover, fan art, photography, I will always smile to it!

If you could shout anything on the very top of a mountain, knowing no one would hear you, what would you say?

I’d shout the names of every character who has died in a book or a TV show then cry for an hour.

What tale out there in the world do you think deserves more retellings?

I can’t decide between Red Riding Hood and The Little Mermaid. I love both stories and I’d like to see more.

Also, I’d think it’d be interesting if there were some Jack and the Beanstalk retellings.

Lauren @ Wonderless Reviews asks:

What’s your favourite thing about blogging?

That is interacting with people who have similar interests! I love to discuss books and I like it when new people introduce my to new authors! 😀 I like expanding my genres.

I also love hearing what all of you have to say about my blog! I love all your positive feedback!

What’s your most recent 5 star read?


My review for The Sun Is Also a Star will be out soon!

If you could only recommend one book to people what would it be?


Fangirl is one of my favorite books of all time! I would forever recommend this!

Jamie @ Book Pandemonium asks:

What’s your guilty pleasure book trope/ trope you will never get tired of?

It would be a fluffy story. Those stories are the best.

What’s your favorite book from your least favorite genre?


This isn’t really a horror book, but the series sure was creepy. I loved it though!

Who’s your favorite celebrity right now? (Or fictional character, if you’re not into celebrities)


Why BBC? Because Benedict Cumberbatch!:

Which book world would you love to live in?

The Shadowhunter Chronicles! I love the series so much! I would love it one day if I woke up and everything from Cassie Clare’s books suddenly came true!

Which fictional character do you think resembles you the most?

Lily from P.S. I Like You. I found her very relatable to myself. We’re both very awkward and love music!

Reg @ She Latitude asks:

What are your goals for your second year of blogging?

I’m trying to post a bit more, and I want to try and make different kinds of bookish posts other than tags. (I just need to brainstorm some ideas.) I also have a few reviews for a couple of self-published authors that I hope y’all will enjoy!

How many hours a week do you spend blogging and reading?

At least 3-5 hours on weekends for blogging. It now takes longer to read one book because I’m busy nowadays, so I will read at least one book per week. (Sometimes it takes longer.)

My blogging process: I work on tags, TTTs, and other posts on Friday night and the weekend when I find free time. Then I schedule all the posts throughout the week. For reviews I write them right after I finish the book so that everything is still fresh. (It’s an odd process, I know.)

Angelwings5700 asks:

What made you choose a book blog in general?

Well, I wanted to do an art/fashion blog at first. However, I wasn’t really comfortable showcasing my art at the time and I wasn’t also that great with clothes.

I was newly introduced to books, and I wanted to inspire others to read. I also wanted to expand my view on the book world.

I’ve learned lots from blogging, and I had all of you to help me out! Now, I’m helping others and I’m sharing my love of books with everyone!

Louise @ Foxes & Fairy Tales asks:

Which is your favourite type of blog post to read and/or write?

I love to read tags! They’re always entertaining to read, and I learn about the blogger while doing so.

I love writing my reviews! I feel accomplished after, and I get to start a new book! (I try to read one at a time.)

Ashley @ Inside My Mind asks:

What is the most difficult part of blogging?

Being up to date is very difficult. There are a lot of new terms and phrases that always I look up to understand some questions from tags. (I had to look up what OTP meant once. 😂)

On top of that, I try to read the latest books that come out, but I’m always swamped with a pile of books I have at home that’s just sitting around unread. I have around 30+ books in my box, 7 (?) library books, and 6 eBooks (all review copies) that I have yet to read.

Gretchen @ ChicNerdReads asks:

What’s one thing you’ve learned while blogging that’s helped you most?

This may sound dull, but Copy and Paste. 😂 WordPress sometimes doesn’t save a thing, or sometimes my comments don’t get sent, so I just Copy everything just in case there’s a hiccup with my wifi. It’s saved me from so many problems.

Book Bum asks:

How long have you been blogging for/book reviewing for and how do you promote your blog?

A year! I use Twitter and Goodreads, as well as Blog List Me. (I don’t know if I’m on any other directories, I might be though.) I’ve survived almost 9 months with just going around the Reader too, but I’ve made a Twitter to help get some more traffic. (That and since I started to accept Review Copies, having a Twitter became necessary for other authors to get in touch.)

What 3 books do you think are the most overrated?

I’ve had to think about this one but Twilight, The Hunger Games, and Divergent. I love THG and I liked Divergent (I’ve only read the first book and Four) but I’d like it if newer books got just as much hype and more appreciation.

Flaneur @ The Jouska asks:

What are your hobbies apart from reading books? 🙂

Watching TV, YouTube, or any DVD. Also lots of eating, and napping. And Pintresting. I also try and doodle.

Judith @ Read and Review asks:

What is your most recent read? 🙂


I’ll make a review and have it posted soon!

Tiana @ The Book Raven asks:

What is something that always makes you smile?

Anything to do with art, mainly fan art because they’re some pretty great artists out there with great talent and I love looking at their work!

What is something you’ve always wanted to do, but haven’t gotten to yet?

Travel! I’ve never traveled anywhere, but one day I hope to visit other countries and see all the sites! (And buy all the books from there!)

What kind of posts do you love writing the most?

Reviews! I get to rant about and/or praise many books!

Tags are a close second!

Sydney @ Sydney’s Shelves asks:

What is your favorite mythical creature?

Unicorn! Sometimes their friendly, sometimes their dangerous. But mainly they’re buckets of sunshine and rainbows!!!!! 🦄

Queen Jojo @ Queens and Cupcakes asks:

Who’s your favorite author?

Cassandra Clare! She’s a great writer and artist! She’s made many books in my favorite series and has illustrated a lot of graphic novels and manga!

What was the first blog you discovered and loved oh so much?

I don’t really recall that far, but I remember checking out my earliest follower’s blog and I though it was amazing! I still do, and if you want to check it out here’s the link: Book Wish.

Do you sometimes not believe that you’re an actual blogger with people who follow your blog and like your posts?

Yes! People really like what I say? I’m touched!

I want to hug you all!! *Hug*

Kayla @ TheKDrewBookworm asks:

What would make you choose to follow a blog?

Well, I’ll follow almost any YA blog out there. I like blogs that feature the books I’ve read and are interested in reading! So that’s many all the blogs I’ve come across.

Twin Tales asks:

Why did you name your blog what you did?

Icebreaker. I wanted to show people that reading was cool! So I chose this name because I’m breaking the ice on certain topics. (Like icebreaker questions.) I wanted to let people know which books I enjoyed and which I didn’t, and I’d talk to people and slowly that ice will melt inside of them and they’d find the books I liked interesting!

I sound a little whimsical I know. But my original intent was to encourage others to enjoy books with my reviews! I had polls and questions set up too! (Though I don’t post them much, I still have that tab on my site open if you wanted to ever check them out.)

What would be one word to describe yourself?

Strategist. I need a plan and a strategy for everything. I always come up with blog ideas in my head and figure out how I’ll present them in my blog. A lot of the time, can’t really see a tag or a bookish idea as great post, so I don’t write it out.

Thank you all for reading! And thank you for submitting your questions!! I loved looking at them and creating this post! I might do it again when I reach my next milestone!
